“He Taught Me How To Love” was recorded by Spiritual Soul Artist Hope Sheree formally Hope Askew in her first release since her hiatus six years ago. It was written by Hope, Alfandre Page, and Shelton Flyth. The song was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Josh Haddad, owner of the Virginia Beach Recording Arts. The song was also produced by Ronell (P. Sess) Sessoms. Backgrounds were crooned by Alfandre Page, Hope Sheree, Jazmine Canales, Jelecia “JayDee” Harper, Terese Robinson and Yunassea “KeeKee” Battle.
“He Taught Me How To Love”is an Inspirational ballad, which contains elements of R&B, Soul, Blues, and packs a strong message of awareness in God and how he moves in our lives. This song has a heavy old school sound and pays homage to a dear friend, the late legendary soul singer/writer Mr. Harvey Scales who was signed to Stax Records.
In this song, Hope shares her vulnerability in regard to a very controversial topic – infidelity. She belts it over superbly laid choir like vocals in a heartfelt dance full of passion and pain in the rarest form. The song simply relays the relationship between the pain we feel when life is unfair and how God wishes to teach us to love through it. Hope says, “No matter what I go through in this life, it is God teaching me how to love”.

TeSchara is originally from Trumbull, CT. and is the youngest of 2 children born to Deacon James and Betti Teel. She started singing at the age of 3 in “The Starlight Choir” under the direction of Reverend Michael Cummings and the late Reverend Dr. Maxine Durham, at her home church East End Baptist Tabernacle Church. God gave her a gift to sing for Him, and a passion to Worship Him. Even at a young age, she saw how lyrics of The Word of God, coupled with melodies and instruments really drew her and others closer to God. TeSchara moved to Jacksonville, Fl. In the late 1990’s to attend Jacksonville University. Shortly after graduating, she began to attend Circle of Faith Ministries under the leadership of Pastor Joseph McRoy and Pastor Johnny Wells, where she gave her life to Christ.
Soon after receiving Christ, TeSchara began writing. She wrote many songs, but they did not go any further than her notebook, until one day God spoke to her and said, the songs that I have given you will never reach the world sitting in your notebook. She quickly took heed and began her journey to record. God is the source and the strength of TeSchara’s life, pleasing Him is always what she aims to do. She loves touching the hearts and minds of people to encourage them that if they only believe, trust and obey God’s Word, all things are possible. She loves people, and her goal is to be very instrumental in advancing The Kingdom of God with more people who are truly on fire for The Lord, and want an actual real relationship with Him, not just protocol, rules and religion.
TeSchara is currently the Psalmist for BeautyForAshes International Ministries under the leadership of Apostle Felicia Stanley. TeSchara’s favorite scripture is Matthew 6:33-34. But first and most importantly seek (aim at, strive after) His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right…the attitude and character of God], and all these things will be given to you also. So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. (Amplified) She believes that as we seek Him FIRST! And love one another unconditionally, everything else will fall in line.
Where we teach the Fundamentals of Liturgical and Praise Dancing. I intend to continue to break the bearers and decrease the misconceptions about Praise Dance Ministry. There indeed are so my misconceptions of praise dance, to the point where some people, churches and ministries, still don’t even accept it as a form of worship, or an art of ministry.

To capture the heart of God while simultaneously compelling others to an intimate relationship with Christ, is Jokia Williams in a nutshell. A guitar playing singer and songwriter, she aims to deliver a sound that makes an impression on every heart that lends their ear to her message through music. This can be seen quite evidently in her debut single “Amen”, which garnered the type of traction that is uncommon, yet impressive, for a release not supported by a record label or major marketing. Prior to the digital release of “Amen”, Jokia offered a soul-stirring performance of the song at Marquis Boone’s 2015 Discovered conference that landed her a demo recording deal. Since then, and with much dedication to her craft and devotion to God, Jokia’s ministry continues to gain visibility, amazing opportunities and platforms to minister through music, and the greatest gift of all: lives changed. There is more than music to Jokia Williams. She is also a proud wife (to Benjamin Williams) and a mother of 2 amazing daughters.

Durmond Glanton was born on July 14, 1977. Since the time of his conception, the enemy has had a hit out on Durmond’s life. At the age of 4, he taught himself how to play the drums, and had it mastered by the age of 9. He served faithfully as the church drummer until the age of 22. It was then when Durmond locked himself in a room and taught himself how to play the piano.In 2000, while attending a local revival in Rochester, NY, a prophet named Eric Cooper from Phoenix, Arizona spoke into Durmond’s life and declared that “After the Storm, God is going to put your name in lights for the world to see.”Since then Durmond has survived 3 strokes, beginning stage lung cancer, a minor heart attack, homelessness, drug addiction and suicidal battles. If you ask him today, “Durmond, how were you able to go through all of that at such a young age and STILL survive?” His answer is simple, “When God is fighting for you, you can’t lose. People CHOOSE to be defeated, I choose to be UNDEFEATED with God on my side.”
Durmond is now a skillful Minister of Music at the WOW (Winning Over the World) Church in Atlanta, Georgia. He is an accomplished songwriter, vocal coach, music teacher, music producer and recording artist. His main goal in Kingdom work and in life, is changing the world “One song at a time”. Durmond’s plans are to give back to less fortunate churches in their music departments to help build strong bible based musicians for Ministry. He is a great example of overcoming all odds, and allowing others to see that ONLY through Jesus Christ, we are “UNDEFEATED”.
